Devils captain Salvador back in lineup vs. Jets

NEWARK, N.J. -- The New Jersey Devils will have their captain back in the lineup against the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday at Prudential Center.

Defenseman Bryce Salvador, who missed the team's game on Saturday against the Carolina Hurricanes with an upper body injury, will replace Mark Fayne.

Salvador, who said he was injured in a Feb. 28 game in Winnipeg, was checked by doctors on Saturday. The 37-year-old Salvador has one assist and a minus-5 rating in 24 games for the Devils this season.

"I don't have any issues with where he'll be [Sunday]," Devils coach Peter DeBoer said of Salvador.

Additionally, Krystofer Barch will replace Stefan Matteau in the lineup. Henrik Tallinder will miss his third straight game with a lower-body injury.

Right now I'm just happy to be back and get through this season and make sure I do my job. I've never had an issue with having to prove myself again and I'll try to do it again. We'll see where it takes me.
